Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Chip Blondies

Thursday, April 22, 2010

25 Comments

I had a craving for coconut the other day. As it happens, I had some coconut in the pantry.  I also had some chocolate chips and my mind began working.  I ultimately decided on blondies.  For versatility, flavor, and general appeal you really can not beat a blondie.  Toss in some toasted coconut and some […]

Orange Almond Chocolate Cookies

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

This cookie is not what I set out to make.    This was supposed to be a simple almond cookie.  I was craving almond cookies last week and decided to come up with a recipe that incorporated ground almonds into the cookie for some texture.  Things went astray when I saw a lonely orange sitting […]

Black and White Cream Pie

Ready for some new shenanigans?  How about we start with pie?    When I first started cooking I used to make something called “Oreo Pie”.  It was made with an Oreo crust, chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, and whipped topping.  It was easy, it tasted pretty good, and when sliced it looked fairly impressive.  That pie […]

Before we get started with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies a couple of fun news items ….    First, as many of you know I am participating in an event sponsored by Electrolux in New York City to help raise awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.  It is a fantastic organization and you can help by donating here.  Part of […]

Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake

Friday, January 15, 2010

27 Comments

When I was a child swirled pound cake was an utter mystery to me. I wondered how they were able to get the chocolate batter to make such intricate designs in the finished cake.  Now that I am older I understand that the oven does nearly all the swirling because as the cake bakes the […]

The combination of chocolate and banana is highly underrated.   Aside from some frozen bananas dipped in chocolate, and chocolate chip banana bread, the combination is largely overlooked.  Well, break out your bananas because we are going to make something that will make chocolate lovers rejoice.    The crepes are chocolate but they do not have […]

Spiced Chocolate Crinkles

There is something magic about a soft, chewy chocolate cookie. Crinkle cookies are an attractive addition to any platter of cookies.  I have a recipe that was given to me by a friend long ago which is lovely on its own, but you know me and my propensity to tinker.  Inspired by my Chocolate Spice […]

Welcome Fall!!   It is not exactly cool here, but we have had three days where the temps have stayed cool enough for the air to be crisp, and that puts me in a Fall baking mood!  I decided to break out all the ingredients for a spice cake when a bar of dark chocolate […]

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

 This recipe is something of a triumph for me.    I have long suffered with an inability to make a light and tender angel food cake.  The cakes always, without fail, fall in the oven or just after removal from the oven.  It drove me mad!   Now I am confident those days are behind […]

Almond and Chocolate Filled Butter Cookies

If given the choice of any dessert I want, I almost always pick the cookie.  I adore them.  During the Holidays I tend to eat and bake so many cookies that I get a little tired of them and I can’t stand to make them until Spring is fully underway.  These cookies have a delicious secret hidden in them.  […]
